8th February 2013

Stunning and colourful landscape artwork, provided by Year 6 pupils at Bolton School Boys’ Division, is currently offering a dramatic and eye-catching wall of art in the busy Upper Hall of the Market Place Shopping Centre in Bolton town centre. The landscape paintings were created as part of the Year 6 Art curriculum in the Junior School and the exhibition will run for the whole of February - go down and have a look!
In School this week over 80 year 4 girls from 21 local primary schools took part in our annual Just4Girls Science and Maths Day. The experience provided them with an opportunity to enjoy a range of traditionally 'male' subjects in a new and fun way, and was aimed at linking science and maths together. Throughout the day there were sessions in Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
Bolton School Boys’ Division are double swimming champions of Bolton! The boys triumphed in the Bolton Schools Town Gala by beating close rivals Canon Slade School and winning both the Junior and Intermediate age groups. It was a suberb end to a superb tournament, in which the teams reached the finals in every event. Well done to all! Also this week, Old Boy and former Chairman of Lancashire County Cricket Club Committee, Geoff Ogden, led former pupils in a special lunchtime presentation to Bolton School’s first national cricket champions.
Fourteen Year 7 girls showed nerves of steel as they competed in front of the whole year group in a French Spelling Bee Competition. The pupils were competing for the chance to represent the Girls’ Division at the regional final, to be held at Manchester Metropolitan University in March. And the Boys’ Division English Department Lecture Competition came to an end with year group finals held in the Great Hall at lunchtimes and watched by the whole year group. Over Christmas, English teachers asked the pupils in years 7 to 10 to prepare a presentation on an interesting topic to present to their classmates. Teachers chose the best pupil in each class to go through to the finals.
Bolton School Junior Boys were treated to a performance with a difference this week when they were visited by music duo 'Travelling by Tuba'. There was a strong emphasis on audience participation as the whole school was given an exciting presentation tracing the history of the tuba, and demonstrations of weird and exotic examples of musical instruments from all over the world. While Thursday at Hesketh House was International Day 2013, with a host of activities to celebrate everything German. All girls came off timetable to spend a day filled with cross-curricular activities, exploring the food, language and culture of Germany and researching interesting German facts.
